As part of the work of the association of European Research Establishments in Aeronautics (EREA), of which Łukasiewicz – Institute of Aviation is a member, the first part of the “EREA Vision Study – Future Aviation in 2050” was published. The author of the study is Ligeia Paletti, an expert at the Royal Netherlands Aerospace Centre NLR. The document is based on the current social and aviation context and presents four alternative scenarios for the development of aviation in 2050.
The report is available for download on the EREA website: https://www.erea.org/erea-vision-study-future-aviation-2050.
The “EREA Vision Study – The Future of Aviation in 2050” is the update of the previously released “EREA vision for the future – Towards the future generation of Air Transport System” published in 2010. This new study, describing EREA’s own vision, has as objectives:
- to share EREA’s vision with external stakeholders to help enhance cooperation,
- to form the basis for EREA to support policy makers at national and European level,
- to motivate EREA and its members to work together to common and ambitious goals, and
- to engage with the general public, particularly on societal needs and sustainability for the aviation sector.
The Łukasiewicz Research Network – Institute of Aviation is one of the most modern research facilities in Europe, with traditions dating back to 1926. The Institute closely cooperates with global tycoons of the aviation industry, such as: GE, Airbus, Pratt & Whitney, and institutions from the space industry, including the European Space Agency. Strategic research areas of the Institute are aviation, space and unmanned technologies. It also provides research and services for domestic and foreign industries in the field of materials, composite, additive, remote sensing, energy mining technologies.
The Łukasiewicz Research Network provides attractive, complete and competitive technological solutions. It offers a unique system of “challenging” to business, thanks to which a group of 4,500 scientists in no more than 15 working days accepts the business challenge and proposes the entrepreneur to develop an effective implementation solution. At the same time, it involves the highest competences of scientists in Poland and a scientific apparatus unique in Poland. What is most important – the entrepreneur does not bear any costs related to the development of an idea for research work. Łukasiewicz meets the expectations of business in a convenient way. The entrepreneur may decide to contact us not only through the form at https://lukasiewicz.gov.pl/biznes/ but also in more than 50 locations: the Łukasiewicz Institutes and their branches throughout Poland. They will receive the same – high quality – product or service everywhere. The Łukasiewicz potential is focused around such research areas as: health, intelligent mobility, digital transformation and sustainable economy and energy.
